The primary reason for brandt syndrome is the deficiency of zinc in our bodies. Clinical symptoms of zinc insufficiency develop when the body's need for zinc outweighs its supply. Reduced absorption, increased intake, and higher excretion can all contribute to zinc insufficiency.
- Acrodermatitis enteropathica congenital form is an autosomal recessive genetic condition. It appears to be the outcome of SLC39A4 gene alterations. When a person receives the same defective gene for the same trait from both parents, recessive genetic diseases develop.
- Some women struggle to produce enough zinc in their breast milk, and this can also have a hereditary component. A single SLC30A2 mutation can lower the zinc content of breast milk.
Only one gene abnormality is needed, and carriers of the disorder have a 50% chance of passing it on to their progeny.
